Goolara
("Moonlight")

by Jeff Austin

Goolara, or "Moonlight" in the Aboriginal language, is an evocative depiction of city rooftops as seen from the outback at night.

The angular shapes and bright lights of European-style buildings are at odds with the ancient landscape on which they stand.

Using a pallette of intense blues and greens, the design and colouration of the work deviates from the flowing forms of the natural world, illustrating the imprint of modern man on the natural world.

Part of the "Australia" collection.
